Palette Swatch | Urban Decay Moondust

DSC01142

Every time I go shopping I have to try to avoid Sephora and Ulta like the plague. Those places are a death trap for makeup junkies like myself. Well, the other day I had to take my kiddos school shopping and I was trying my best to avoid Sephora, when I saw this beauty on a display case. I stopped in to take a peek and swiped a few swatches and tried to walk away. “Tried” being the key word. I purchased this palette and I have no regrests. I’m lucky I was able to get out of the store with this palette being my only purchase. I haven’t created any looks with this palette yet, but rest assure I will have some coming soon. A friend and I were playing around with the colors the other night and they are so beautiful that we got carried away and had glitter everywhere.  LOL! The pictures really don’t give this palette any justice. It is one of those products that you must see in person. With that being said, enough with the talking and let’s get swatching!

Dry swatches done with my finger. Colors left to Right: Specter, Element, Magnetic, Lightyear, Granite, Lithium, Vega, & Galaxy

When used dry the colors are super sparkly, but when you apply the colors wet they look more metallic and a little less sparkly. Both ways are stunning. It just depends on the look you are going for.

And of course and am so mesmerized by the sparkly colors that I had to give you all a few more close ups.

Look of the Day | Estee Lauder the Old & the New

EL OLD & NEW-1 I was in he mood to play and I had to get ready for work so I grabbed all of my Estee Lauder products and worked it out. I used some items that are wonderful and new and some items that are wonderful and discontinued. I always look at my discontiued products like little treasures in my collection that others might not have ever got the pleasure of knowing. I did take these pictures later in the evening after a long day at work so they might even seem a little faded after being on for over 12 hours. And I did touch up the lipstick before taking the shots.

Starrily Nails Polish Review

20151204_182533-1

I stumbled on some pics of these polishes on Pinterest and they were so stunning in the images that I knew I had to buy a few and try them for myself. I was in disbelief that the colors were that beautiful without a filter or some photo magic. It took a couple of weeks to receive my package and I definitely acted like a kid about to get ice cream while opening the box. Immediately I was put in my place when I saw the colors in the little bottles. They were stunning! I have created a few really cute nail looks with these polishes and I can say that they outlasted any of the other polishes that were used on my fingers for those looks. FYI, my current polish collection consists mostly of Essie & OPI. They claim that all of their polishes are created cruelty free, vegan, & 5 free. The colors do dry a tad on the matte side and look best with a topcoat. That really would be my only complaint. Not a biggie since I always do that step. I would give these polishes a 5/5. *All swatches below do have a clear topcoat on them.
